Maximum time as Tourist in Peru per year?

Postby amigorick » Sun Sep 01, 2013 8:00 pm

Recently when entering Peru the immigration officer told me that the maximum any person can stay in Peru is 183 days PER YEAR. Is this new as I thought before we could do a simple border hop or do a couple months aboard and re-enter a get additional 183 days without problem. Last year I was given two 183 day tourist visas. Have things changed? The Expat Peru article states that technically the 183 days is not per year,but per issuance. However I did an Internet search and found 183 maximum per year stated on some website.

Just wanted to check in with the community as I have' t read anything in the forums about a new 183 maximum days per year.

It's still the same as before, but it appears that where you enter Peru and who the immigration officer is makes a difference. Here's the last big thread on it.

He was probably after a tip to 'help you out'.

Thanks Sergio for the link. I had done a forum search using "Tourist visa" but that thread did not come up.
